Uster continually seeks to foster 'Think Quality' at ITMA
Jun '14
For more than 10 years, the name USTER has been uniquely associated with ‘Think quality’ – an unbreakable link connecting the entire textile chain. And ‘Think quality’ is more than just a neat slogan: “It has become part of our corporate brain, guiding everything we do,” says Uster Technologies CEO Dr Geoffrey Scott. “Customers feel it, as the spirit of the company. Yet it goes a lot deeper than that, transforming a stated commitment into real benefits for customers, with practical results in both quality and profitability.”
Uster Technologies continually seeks to foster the ‘Think quality’ philosophy, emphasizing the need to produce textiles to exactly the required quality standards, at the same time as operating mills at the highest levels of efficiency and profitability. This combination is further exemplified at ITMA Asia & CITME 2014 in Shanghai, where the company is giving details of how systems from the recently-acquired Jossi Systems AG integrate seamlessly with existing USTER applications to provide a unique solution known as TOTAL CONTAMINATION CONTROL.
The USTER JOSSI systems fit perfectly with ‘Think quality’, bringing total testing to a new level and allowing spinners to take control of yarn quality in the blowroom. The ability to recognize and eliminate foreign matter particles in raw cotton tufts is one major advantage. Another is the chance to set precise quality characteristics for the raw cotton before it reaches the vital carding operation. 
USTER products already cover essential yarn production tasks before and after spinning: ginning and cotton classing, fiber testing and cleaning, yarn testing and in-process yarn clearing at the winder. The USTER JOSSI range extends and enhances this coverage with automated solutions for cleaning raw fiber to remove both natural and synthetic contaminants in the blowroom, before they can impact on quality in subsequent processes.
‘Think quality’ also embraces USTER’s partnership approach, dedicated to supporting customers in the optimization of their manufacturing operations. Here too, the USTER JOSSI systems are important, making USTER even more of a one-stop-shop for textile quality control and monitoring.
Controlling the options
The integration of these new products began with the renaming as USTER JOSSI and the adoption of a new livery, matching the familiar red and grey of USTER. But there is also a significant technological advantage, in the form of TOTAL CONTAMINATION CONTROL. This combines the USTER JOSSI VISION SHIELD with the USTER QUANTUM 3 yarn clearers to give spinners a powerful defence against one of their major headaches.
